magic of malt whisky for me!
Do you sometimes find that a
single flavour, or complex mix of flavours transports you
immediately to another place or time? Perhaps one where you
enjoyed a specific experience? Maybe even conjuring up long
lost memories from your childhood or youth. If you do, then
maybe you will appreciate the way I write my tasting notes as I
share some of my own experiences where this has happened with me.
Quarter Casks immediately transports me to Christmas Day in an
English country house, relaxing in the study just after
Milford 10 is responsible for
reminding me of childhood bonfire nights where in England, on
each 5th November we celebrate the failure of Guy Fawkes in
blowing up the Houses of Parliament.
The moment I take a first
Talisker 10 I am back on the isle of Skye, never far from
the sea or the delightful, slightly smoky countryside.
that every bottle of
Caol Ila or
Laphroaig has its own
Atlantic jetty or beach hidden somewhere inside, whereas
in their offerings,
Park have mysteriously managed to encompass every
hike I ever made through Scottish heather and bracken.
So it continues, delightful experiences and memories revitalised
through the magical world of single malts!
